Tuna Green Bean Casserole

My neighbor mentioned tuna noodle casserole and it occurred to me I hadn’t made that in forever.  My heart was torn because I had just purchased a giant bag of French’s Fried Onions and a bag of petite fresh green beans.  I really wanted to make green bean casserole.  So I combined the two and came up with a simple and tasty dinner.

The whole family enjoyed this meal.  Who doesn’t love a comforting casserole?  Mr.Picky heated it up even the next morning for breakfast.  Next time I will update the recipe by removing the canned mushroom soup and making it from scratch.  This is because Mr.Picky dried a ton of wild mushrooms and for health reasons.  It was late and I was hungry so I reached for the extra cans in the cupboard.  I really enjoyed the green beans and would probably double the amount next time.  This depends on if your family likes green beans of course.

  • 2 (10 3/4 oz.) cans of cream of mushroom soup
  • 3/4 cup milk

  • 1/2 cup onions, finely chopped
  • 2 (7 oz. or smaller) cans tuna, drained and flaked

Tuna Green Bean Casserole

While cooking noodles, throw the green beans into the water the last-minute or two of boiling to start the cooking process.

Meanwhile in a large bowl combine mushroom soup, milk, pepper, onion,tuna, 1/2 cup fried onions, and shredded cheese.

Drain noodles and beans and add to the bowl.

Combine the mixture and pour into a lightly grease 9×13″ glass baking dish.

Bake at 375 degrees for about 30-40 minutes, or until bubbly.  The last 5 minutes of cooking sprinkle with the remaining 1/2 cup fried onions and cook until golden brown.
